Campaign of the Month: January 2012
Star Trek Late Night
The Kel Dor evolved on Dorin, a world with an atmosphere consisting mostly of helium and a gas that is unique to that world. As such, Kel Dor cannot breathe on planets with common nitrogen/oxygen atmospheres. Conversely, Dorin’s atmosphere is toxic to most nonnative life.
On other planets, Kel Dor dwellings provide their native atmosphere (stored in large tanks). When outside, Kel Dor must wear breath masks and goggles. They can neither see nor breathe without these devices. Most Kel Dor breath masks include vocoders that amplify the wearer’s speech; while their vocal cords function normally in their native atmosphere, Kel Dor must shout to produce sound in other environments. Their eyesight, however, is enhanced when they are away from Dorin.
Personality: Calm and kind, the Kel Dor never turn away a being in need. Still, most believe in quick, simple justice (even engaging in vigilantism).
Physical Description: The average Kel Dor stands between 1.6 and 2 meters tall. Their skin ranges from peach to deep red, and most have black eyes.
Homeworld: The technological planet of Dorin
Languages: The Kel Dor speak, read, and write Kel Dor and Basic
Example Names: Dorn Tlo, Plo Koon, Torin Dol
Adventurers: Kel Dor commonly become diplomats, bounty hunters, and Jedi. Given their altruism and sense of justice, many enter law enforcement.
